Can Having Sex During Menstruation Cause HIV?
Hello i just got married 5 months I want to ask one day my husband wants to have sex but I was in the first hed state and after having sex at night my husband had diarrhea, body aches and fever, what is a sign of HIV? Please answer, I’m afraid
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. HIV / AIDS is a disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus and is a disease that is transmitted through sexual contact. This disease decreases a person's immune system and until now there is still no cure.
Even though this disease is a dangerous disease and its spread is very wide, that does not mean that it is just spreading. The process of spreading HIV disease is as follows:
Having sex with sufferers
Affected by the patient's blood
Exposure to vaginal fluids, anal fluid or sperm fluids in patients
Using a syringe that is not sterile
Performing a blood transfusion with contaminated blood
From mothers who have the disease to their children while pregnant or while breastfeeding
So regarding your question, it is clear that the main condition is that one of you has to be exposed to the virus to infect each other. Having sex while on your period does not make you infectious or contract HIV if neither of you has had the disease before.
Our advice, check your husband to the doctor because diarrhea, body aches and fever are more likely to be caused by bacterial, viral or parasitic infections in the digestive tract and HIV usually does not show symptoms like that right away. Tell your husband to get more rest, consume nutrient-rich foods, take fever-reducing drugs and diarrhea medicines, also avoid spicy, acidic and fatty foods for a while. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
